Using Amazon SES Auto-Tags

Amazon SES automatically provides a number of message tags, called auto-tags, to help you categorize your emails. To use auto-tags, you do not need to specify message tags when you send the email, but you must still specify a configuration set.

Important

If you publish your events to Amazon CloudWatch and you want to use auto-tags, you must explicitly define a dimension value for the auto-tags when you set up the CloudWatch event destination.

The following table shows the auto-tags that Amazon SES provides.

Auto-tag name Description

ses:configuration-set

ses:caller-identity

The caller's AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) identity

ses:from-domain

The domain of the "From" address

ses:source-ip

The IP address that the caller used to send the email

ses:outgoing-ip
